I can do this in my scirocco by matching the revs and it will easily drop into first. I've tried, lightly, with this G60 transmission and cable shift, but just get the gear grind. Is it possible?
How high to the revs have to be to drop from 2nd to 1st while rolling at say 20km/hr? 1st seems very low.
If this question should be moved tell me where. Thanks

I've dropped it into first before using the rev method...but around 3-5mph...just cuz 2nd couldn't pull it outside of boost. It'll be hard to drop into first above that
